Write Tight

When we write, we tend to embellish and add a lot of filler words that increase the word count and add pages to our wip. This is not a good thing!

Word count and the number of pages we spread them across is not what’s important; it’s the story we weave and how it’s presented.

Think of ways to say the same thing using less words. I found a website that describes how to eliminate the word ‘very’ (scroll down the page), a word we use when we try to emphasize or stress size and intensity.

All my best,
